Hey All, I am el Hotpockeo! It took me a bit to get over here, but here I am, and yes I still have the lebaron, and here are some photos of it ( sorry for the shitty cellphone quality )


108,000 Miles! And still going strong!

Rear End, Fugly as ever!

I call it- SexMobile ( not )

The View, amazing.

The Car? HotPockets Review of Owning a 1995 Lebaron:

The Good:

Decent power, looks cool, handles pretty decenlty ( better than my freinds monte carlo for sure, I can rip his ass around corners )

The Bad:

Drinks Gas, suspension has a bad bushing in it somwhere, shitty A604 transmission.

Future Mods: A543 5 Speed Swap.

Hahaha, I dont think thats necessary Tongue My freinds Monte is a Z34 as well, not sure of the year, thing is like a boat around corners, the Lebaron actually holds on pretty good,

However, there are plans for the Lebaron.

Step One: After winter replace shitty A604 Junker Transmission with an A543 5 Speed
Step 2: Snowflake wheels
Step 3: Minor Bolt ons, These 3.0s can wake up pretty well, the mopar guys tell me.
Step 4. Replace bad bushing, it just sqeeaks going up and off the driveway
Step 5. New Red Top, I think red would look better.


Side Note: No wing, no big stupid exhaust, no ricer paint jobs either, just some minor stuff I'd like to do.

Its a pretty light car as well, 3100 Pounds fully loaded. I'm pretty sure its based off a K car.

I love it, its not very fast, but it sure is fun to drive.

Thanks, the Lebaron actually lost a hubcap when I hit a bump pretty hard, so right now it looks pretty ass, I did order another matching one off the internet though.

You would not believe the handling difference between the Civic and the Lebaron. The civic liked to almost kill me, body roll, lots of slipping through corners.

The LeBaron is a totally different story, Im glad I went for a GTC over an LX: There is a HUGE difference between these. It actually holds in the corners very well, very little body lean. Corners that I couldn't take at 40 in the civic I can literally take at 60 in the LeBaron. I measured, the tires are almost twice as wide. MUCH Firmer suspension, which will eventually get more firm.

And you are right, his monte cant touch me in the corners, though he annihilates me with the sense that he has 100 more horsepower than me Cheesy In the straights at least.

I don't understand why these cars are so hated tho. I like mine.

That's probably the cleanest LeBaron I've seen. A buddy of mine had a GTC that he let me drive once. I never really cared for 'em but once I started driving it I changed my mind. It's one of those cars you have to drive to really appreciate it.
